How Can I Maintain My Sculptra Results?

As a Double Board-Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon and expert in non-surgical treatments, Dr. Yula Indeyeva believes Sculptra is one of the best options for reducing the signs of aging by restoring lost facial volume. This one-of-a-kind injectable product works within your body to encourage accelerated collagen production.

If you are noticing that your skin is looser and less resilient than it used to be, read on to learn how Sculptra can help you age more gracefully and get tips for maintaining your outstanding results.

Is Sculptra Right for You?

Before deciding if Sculptra is a solution you want to incorporate into your anti-aging regimen, you should understand how it works and what makes it different from other injectable treatments on the market.

While most of today’s leading dermal fillers create results by using a moisturizing gel called hyaluronic acid to introduce plumpness and volume into the skin, Sculptra consists of poly-L-lactic acid, a biocompatible synthetic compound that the medical community has long relied on as a primary component of absorbable sutures.

Once your body breaks down the PLLA particles, new collagen production will begin in the sub-dermal layers of your skin. Over time, Sculptra is excellent at minimizing fine lines and wrinkles, providing contour, and filling in areas that have lost volume due to aging, such as hollowed areas at your cheeks and temples.

How Long Does Sculptra Last?

Dr. Indeyeva recommends a preliminary series of two to three appointments, scheduled approximately four to six weeks apart, so she can assess your progress after each session.

Unlike dermal fillers, Sculptra does not take effect immediately, since your body needs a few months to start generating new collagen. However, many of our patients continue enjoying their refreshed look for up to two years after their initial round of Sculptra treatments.

Of course, you can maintain your youthful appearance by returning for occasional touch-up appointments.

Here are some other tips for prolonging your Sculptra results:

  • Protect your skin from the sun: Few things age your skin as prematurely as damaging UV rays. Always apply sunscreen before going outside, and don’t neglect areas like your neck and the backs of your hands.
  • Take a preventive approach to aging: Consistent use of medical-grade skincare solutions is one of the best ways to help your complexion look and feel its best at any stage of life.
  • Stay hydrated: Drinking plenty of water every day will help improve your overall health by flushing toxins out of your system and keeping your skin moisturized from within.
